This will be the first total eclipse seen in the contiguous US since 1970 and the first total eclipse to be seen from coast to coast since 1917. The total eclipse leaves the SC coast at 2:44 pm EDT. While no data exists for how many made-for-eclipse eyeglasses are in circulation overall, shady distributors of purportedly solar-safe shades abound on the Internet, Fienberg said. Now let's just keep our fingers crossed that the weather will cooperate.
